Browns lose Alex Mack and Travis Benjamin as free agency begins, reports say
BEREA, Ohio– The Cleveland Browns lost two starters on offense on the first day of NFL free agency.
Center Alex Mack is expected to sign with the Atlanta Falcons, reported ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Wednesday. He became a free agent last week when he voided the remaining time on his five-year contract.
Wide receiver Travis Benjamin will head to the San Diego Chargers, according to the NFL Network. He reportedly agreed to a four-year, $24 million deal.
The Browns picked Mack in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft. He was selected to three Pro Bowls.
Benjamin came to Cleveland in 2012. Last season, he was a bright spot on the offense, with 68 receptions for five TDs, and a punt return for a touchdown.
